That just sounds like a horrible trade without hindsight, trading a kicker for Bill Saul (don't know who he is) and the 8th overall pick that year. I was born in 1987, so what do I know about football then though lol!
I was looking up what round Howard Mudd was drafted in the 1964 draft and came across the Colt's first round pick. It was Marv Woodson at pick 8. Strange I don't remember that as I was a huge Colt fan then and not at kid at 15 years old. Anyway , I knew Woodson never played for the Colts , so I then looked up how the Steelers obtained him. This didn't ring a bell for me either , so I guess in 1964 , I must have been more interested in girls than football. Anyway this is one heck of a ridiculous trade ...
In September of 1964, the Steelers traded kicker Lou Michaels to the Baltimore Colts in exchange for linebacker Bill Saul and running back/cornerback Marv Woodson, first-round draft pick that year out of Indiana. ... Woodson was even voted to the Pro Bowl after the 1967 season after registering 7 interceptions on defense.Jul 19, 2020
I like Jacoby, he is a great backup that we know and an asset to the locker room. As far as starting a full 16 games and getting a team to the playoffs, we don't know if he can do that. He never has so far.
